Who's on top at PlanetOut?
Even faster than it comes up with new business models,
Silicon Valley comes up with new titles. Tom Rielly,
cofounder of the gay and lesbian online media company
PlanetOut, recently decided to step down from the CEO role.
(He'd taken on the job after a dramatic rescue operation
in January 1997 that extricated the startup from a squabble
with its investors.)
But clearly, "chairman" wasn't a fabulous enough title.
His business card adds "Chief Homosexual Officer," which
has a nice ring to it.
